There will also be a Southwest themed potluck and an Open Mic--for bragging rights. If you are in the Chicago area, I hope you will attend!
********************* MARIA J. ESTRADA is an English college professor of Composition, Literature, and her favorite, Creative Writing. She grew up in the desert outside of Yuma, Arizona in the real Barrio de Los Locos, a barrio comprised of new Mexican immigrants and first-generation Chicanos. Drawing from this setting and experiences, she writes like a loca every minute she can—all while magically balancing her work and family obligations. She lives in Chicago’s south side with her wonderfully supportive husband, two remarkable children, and two mischievous cats.
My next book coming out is La Bruja in the Orchard, in Spanish and a second edition of the English version.
